A lovely old fashioned inn. Great for walks lically without having to take the car. Room was great with a super view over the river. Staff very friendly. Would recommend. We met several locals whilst out walking who were goi g for Sunday lunch but having had full breakfast we had no more room for it sadly.

We stayed here for two nights in October, the accommodation and full English breakfast was very good for the price we paid (booked through KGB deal), but I would not have booked at the full B&B price. We ate in the pub on the Friday night and the food was ok, although I think it is very expensive for what... More

We had a meal there recently which was OK, nothing special. Would have been much better without all the swearing and racist jokes/comments coming from the bar - nothing aimed at us but didn't create a good atmostphere. There was some music in the bar but too low to drown this out - shame. We left as soon as we... More

We've just spent an evening at The Fox Inn at Great Barrington near Burford in West Oxfordshire and we will certainly be going back and maybe next time to stay! Would like to see this little find in the day time as it looked very picturesque on their website. As Rocco Forte senior used to say "people make places" and... More

My husband and I have just returned from 2 nights at the Fox Inn. Our room was ready for us although we arrived early. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. We ate in the bar in the evening. I had the lamb Wellington and my husband had the belly pork. Both meals were of a high standard. We... More

I called in at the Fox with my two daughters and granddaughter, when we walked in, we were inspected by 'the locals', who seemed friendly enough. It went downhill rapidly, when I asked the barman if they were still serving food, I was told 'no'. Eventually, when I asked my family if they would like to leave, I was told... More

The appropriate behaviour of my staff is obviously an issue, which i will look into. I myself would always rather a pub with personalities behind the bar who will engage in conversation with customers than those who serve, say nothing and go away. I would like to start a WORLDWIDE TRIP ADVISOR DEBATE 'SOUP' VS NOT ALLOWED TO PUT IN... More

It gives me no pleasure to write a negative review but in this case it's important to be honest. It's a beautiful property and from the outside looks like the quintessential Cotswold pub, until you walk in the door. The smell is what hit first which means it's in need of a good clean. The bar staff was indifferent and... More

I would like to apologise for failing to deliver food of an appropriate standard but this was a small period when i had to resort to an agency chef who was not up to our normal standard. The filo parcel portion should of been double that of what was served (obviously served our starter size rather than main course by... More

The Fox is in a beautiful setting next to the river with a great beer garden. The food however is overpriced for what it is. We ordered from the bar/pub lunch menu rather than the main dishes as we were having lunch and whilst the service was prompt and friendly the food itself did not match the price charged (average...

My husband and 2 children came here for dinner during our break in Burford. It was quite quiet except for a few locals and I understand from previous reviews that some tourists have been intimidated by this, which has urged me to write my own review. I loved it! We had great banter with the bar staff who were warm,... More
